When it comes to cancellations, no TV show is safe. From poor ratings to high production costs, many series have found themselves saying goodbye. One Netflix series recently had its plug pulled, and fans are trying to revive it.

Fists Of Fury

When word broke that Netflix canceled Iron Fist, many fans simply couldn’t believe it. The Marvel series debuted its second season weeks prior to its cancellation. Hardcore Iron Fist fan Melissa Hodge decided to start an online petition to bring the series back. She points towards the cliffhanger in season two’s finale as a key reason.

“There is so much more potential and stories to be told and it’s not great fan service to end the last season on a cliffhanger and not go along with it especially when the second season was more well received with critics and fans,” she states on the petition. So far, the petition has over 26,000 signatures.

A Slight Improvement

Iron Fist was the one Marvel series on Netflix that didn’t hit it out of the park. Its first season earned a 19% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Season two saw a slight increase with a 54% rating.

The second season introduced the characters Typhoid Mary and Sam Chung b.k.a. Blindspot. Earlier this year, the show gained a Saturn Award nomination for Best New Media Superhero Series.

Is He For Hire?

Finn Jones, who played the title character, spoke about his time on the series via Instagram. “I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show,” he stated.

While the show has been canceled, many people expect Iron Fist to make appearances in other Marvel/Netflix shows. Many comic book enthusiasts hope for a live-action adaptation of Heroes For Hire. This superhero team is co-founded by Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
